**Before Purchasing The WLS Formulated Digestive Enzymes, Please Read The Important Notice At the Bottom Of This Page!!
Helps to Eliminate Heartburn
Relieves Constipation & Diarrhea
Improves Digestion & Absorption Of Dense Proteins
WLS Formulated Digestive Enzymes are designed to provide the right intestinal environment necessary to improve digestion of dense foods after weight loss surgery. By adding adequate Betaine HCL to lower stomach pH, while providing ox bile for liver and gallbladder support this formula helps relieve constipation and diarrhea.
WLS Formulated Digestive Enzymes provide adequate enzymes and acid to improve meat digestion after weight loss surgery. This aids in improvement of stomach pain & fullness after eating a few bites of solid, dense foods.
WLS Formulated Digestive Enzymes have both pepsin and betaine HCL to optimize protein digestion and absorption.
Low stomach acid and/or taking Proton Pump Inhibitor(PPI) Medications (Such as Prilosec & Prevacid) for heartburn prevents important vitamins and minerals from being broken down into an absorbable state. WLS Formulated Digestive Enzymes help aid in Vitamin and Mineral absorption and may eliminate the need for PPI medications (Please consult your Bariatric Surgeon on this matter!).
Picking the right digestive enzymes after weight loss surgery
There are five very specific things to consider when choosing a digestive enzyme after weight loss surgery:
1. Betaine HCL:
Weight loss surgery tends to raise the pH of the stomach (5-7) from the optimal pH (1-3), making it a low-acid environment. By adding Betaine HCL in a digestive enzyme will help to restore the balance of acidity to a more optimal level. Allowing for optimal nutrition absorption.
Pepsin is an enzyme within the stomach that begins the digestion of all protein. Without adequate stomach acid, enzymes remain inactive altering the absorption of protein. Therefore, when taking betaine HCL, pepsin is also necessary.
3. Ox Bile:
Bile is a fat emulsifier, which breaks fat molecules into a digestible fatty acid. If stomach acid is low and the stomach pH is high the liver and gallbladder will not be signaled to release bile. Using a digestive enzyme containing Ox bile, the natural form of bile will help to support fat emulsification.
4. Additional Enzymes:
Additional Enzymes are needed to digest carbohydrates, fat and protein: the pancreas is responsible for releasing amylase, for carbohydrate digestion, lipase, for fat digestion, and protease for protein digestion. Taking a digestive enzyme containing additional enzymes to provide the support to digest food will improve blood levels, troublesome symptoms and getting back on track.
5. GMP Manufacturing Facilities and NSF certified:
Good Manufacturing Practices are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure a product has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label.
NSF International independently registers manufacturers as meeting GMP requirements. The program is open not just to manufacturers of dietary supplements but also to manufacturers of ingredients and raw materials, as well as distribution, warehousing and packaging companies, who want to demonstrate their commitment to public safety.
We highly recommend you avoid any supplements (probiotics included) without the GMP and NSF seal of approval
